Can You Share an Album on Facebook?

You can share a photo album on Facebook in two ways: using the Share link or the Gear menu. Both options are accessible directly from your photo album. Use the Share link to share the album with other Facebook users. The Gear menu, on the other hand, is the better option for sharing the album with people outside of Facebook.
